Less than 99 tickets remain from the 475 lecture capacity. Ticket sales have inevitably slowed in the last week or so but if they continue at their current reduced rate.... we will still be sold out within a month.

Just to reinforce what Rick has said, tickets sales are still moving so it is essential that anyone who may be sitting on the fence needs reserves now to avoid disappointment.

Julie (MRS OWL) has been getting a lot more interest and inquiries in the last few days on Space Lectures Twitter from both Britain and Europe.

The August edition of Spaceflight magazine, due out any time now, will likely run an advert for tickets to the Fred Haise lecture in October.

When we ran a similar ad for T.K. Mattingly earlier this year there was an uplift in ticket sales.

Given that sales for Fred Haise significantly outstrip those for T.K at this stage it might be an idea to order tickets now... BEFORE the ad.

Nigh on 400 lecture tickets to date. Only 75 left and that's BEFORE the Spaceflight magazine advert.

One of the few pictures I have seen of Fred in flight depicts him asleep in the LM with his arms folded. I think it was a still taken from a 16mm movie.

Can anybody point me to where I might find a reasonable size copy of this image, suitable for printing?

There was an article in TIME magazine (late April 1970) that had a two page color feature, with one of the pictures showing Haise sleeping in the tunnel between the LM and CM. At least that's my memory of it.

Rick - you could mail the 'other Ed' to see if he has the photo in his collection. I'm sure he'll send you a copy if he has one.

Thanks for the response to the request for the photo guys. It is only a shame a good quality still photo of Fred in flight does not exist.

Fred Haise is number 1 on the runway and everything is set fair for October.

A first for Space Lectures is that they can at this time confirm the dates, prices and times for their NEXT guest in 2015!

April 24th and 25th. Locations, times and prices will be exactly the same as those for Fred.

Tickets will once again be available on a first come first served basis; the sooner payment is sent the nearer to the front of the lecture theatre folk will be seated.

Payment can be sent now, but please make it clear to Ken that your orders are for April 2015.

Out of respect for Fred Haise, Space Lectures is not prepared to name the astronaut guest at this time. As and when Space Lectures can announce the name I will start a new thread with all the details.

It 's impossible to resist Ken and Rick, I will come again this year. I'll find a European group of enthusiasts and historians Apollo. A place pleasant and stimulating. I'm coming Freddo!
